volatility and family care issues that put so much strain on marriage-- i'm kidding. it was about gay people. it protected marriage from gay people. in fact, gay people are considered such a threat to marriage that in addition to a federal defense of marriage act many states have enacted constitutional amendments banning the practice, including our most populous state, california. and our most reluctant to finally repeal interracial marriage bans, alabama. they did it in the year 2000, roll tide of history. before you get too smug on alabama remember the supreme court didn't even turn it over until 1967 so [bleep] us. but this is different. i mean the supreme court is to the going to get involved if gay marriage. >> same-sex couples are finally getting their day in court. this time the u.s. supreme court justices have decided to hear two constitutional challenges to federal and state lawsment one case involves the federal defense of marriage ago or domo. the other is a challenge toical call's prop 8. >> jon: first of all, i cannot believe he managed to squeeze a report in before prom. second

but not religious." advocates of gay marriage saw new momentum. in the november elections, three more states legalized same-sex marriage-the first time it had been approved in ballot initiatives. and voters in minnesota rejected a proposed ban on gay marriage. both sides of the debate were galvanized by the supreme court's announcement that it will be taking up two cases with national implications in the spring. ten years after the catholic church's clergy sex abuse crisis exploded, a high-ranking priest in philadelphia became the first church official to be convicted for failing to report abuse. monsignor william lynn was found guilty of child endangerment and sentenced to up to six years in prison. and in kansas city, bishop obert finn was convicted of a misdemeanor for not reporting the discovery of child pornography on a priest's computer. finn's sentence of two-year's probation was suspended. he was the first bishop to be criminally sanctioned. there were leadership transitions for several major religious groups. new orleans pastor fred luter became the first african-american president

for gay marriage? >> guest: well, to keep it very simple i think relationships are good for people, marriage is good for relationships, and some of our fellow citizens are gay so when i say that relationships are good for people, not just because they make people happy, although that's app important part of it. we all want to live happily ever after, as it were, but there's also something about having something to come home to at night, wake up with in the morning, share one's joys and sorrows with, be committed to, make sacrifices for. the reason that relationships are good for people is that they make us better people. i'm a better person because of my, you know, ten year-plus relationship with my partner mark. when i say marriage is good for relationships because commitment is good for relationships, but marriage ties us into the larger community in a certain way. marriage ties us into our families in a certain way. my parents regard mark as their son-in-law which is important to sustaining the family life that we have, and then some of our fellow citizens are gay. we can talk m

merchants have been vocal about this matter. i say this as a gay man who was drawn to the cat castro and i found some of the rhetoric around this issue to be offensive in its demonization of straight people and gay and straight people who have children. it's not fool yourself. straight people have always lived in the area. many have never left. many moved in ten, 20, 30 years ago that those who are gay did. and children have been here and maybe not as many but quite a few. in fact there are schools within a few blocks of castro and market. i say these things not to do this but it's a very adult neighborhood in many ways and i will fight as anyone for us to continue to embrace our lgbt status and i have done that for years, but the castro is for everyone and we need to stop demonize those that made this neighborhood home and are like me gay men without children. this legislation doesn't result from straight people or people can kids or people complaining about public nudity. the concern has been gay men. i have heard from more far childless gay men in support of this legislation th
